Loved the Maui Ocean Center. We took our 18 month grandson and it kept his attention for 1 1/2 hours. Truly a miracle.

Very well designed aquarium. We saw fish that we never thought existed. We're from Florida and we realized how different the Pacific was from the Atlantic. Very nicely done.

Very beautiful to see sea life and the ocean view was a plus, all of the exhibits were breath taking. Aloha and Mahalo.

Great time


4 star rating: Recommended August 2013

It went from so-so to a recommended activity solely because of the knowledgeable employee. We learned a lot about marine life in Hawaii but the quality of the aquarium did not match the price.
